I wonder what I'm doing wrong. Dtors, smart pointers, etc. take care of
my environment when an exception is thrown and allow me to only abort a
small part (we call it a "session") of the process while the rest is
still in a perfectly consistent state. Well, maybe it's my fault and I
should learn how to write code that mixes up the whole memory on every
small programming error ;)

Regards, Daniel

PS: Note that there's also a difference between the standard theretical
world or portable, well defined behaviour and the real world. I am
explicitly talking about the real world! Boost is not an academic
excercise. At least I hope so... :o)
